In 2015 we wrote a report about Eden Hazard transfer to Real Madrid, four years after see what has changed. please read below (updated report comes after).
Update 2020: Eden Hazard, born 7 January 1991 is now a Real Madrid player wit a salary of 10.4 million, He wears the No.7 jersey previously worn by Cristiano Ronaldo.
All time sensational striker Eden Hazard has been wonderful and has impressed the Blues in so many ways until this season when he has become shambolic.
According to reports lately, Real Madrid has been keen on signing the Belgian star and the deal should be done in the next January transfer window.
The 24-year-old striker is understood to be on the radar of the Santiago Bernabeu for the aging Cristiano Ronaldo who is already 30 and his manager is looking forward to adding Hazard to his team.
The Spanish club has shown their interest in Hazard from an impending transfer ban following the bridge of law in the signing of teenagers and this will enable the Los Blancos to increase their bid for the star.
The striker has appeared in 25 matches and has failed to score due to poor performance and this has reportedly been part of their poor functioning this season.
It has really been tough for the Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho so far.
A deal in the next summer window looks highly unlikely for the blues in signing key players and replacement of the 24-year-old star is on the radar.
Update: Why Eden Hazard is the perfect replacement for Ronaldo at Real Madrid
After the World Cup, Cristiano Ronaldo left the Real Madrid for Juventus in the summer without a Galáctico-style replacement being brought in – although several years before, we have reported that Hazard could be on his way to Real Madrid but a rare opportunity was opened for other players already in the team to step up and show that they could be the new superstars to replace Ronaldo.
Gareth Bale constant injury summed up how that process has gone in addition to that Isco falling out with Santiago Solari, it became very clear that new energy is needed.
Eden Hazard has already made it clear, in public that he would love a “dream” move to Real. to make it worst he has been reluctant to sign a new contract with Chelsea, there is a little doubt he would be a Chelsea player in summer.
Abramovich will need to be willing to make a move happen of course and to state the obvious, Chelsea’s decision to sign Christian Pulisic – He is someone that can play in the same position as Hazard’s – this can be read as “Roma Abramovich is preparing for the inevitable.”
With the continued diminishing returns in the league following it clear that Real Madrid are in need of a major overhaul and there is no doubt that Hazard is the main man to fill Ronaldo’s shoe at the Bernabeu. Arguably, Hazard would be the perfect piece to build Real Madrid.
Chelsea Transfer Ban
Chelsea former player Jimmy Floyd says the transfer ban imposed on Chelsea makes it even more feasible that Eden Hazard will signs a new deal – he will become a free agent in 2020.
When he was asked how the transfer ban would make Hazard to the club, Hasselbaink told
“Even more so, because they can’t replace him, or even get somebody who they can work on to become as good as Hazard.
“I know they have already bought (Christian) Pulisic [from Borussia Dortmund], but they will need to add more if they lose Hazard.
Hasselbaink also thinks that the transfer ban will benefit young players at Stamford Bridge.
“It is not great news for Chelsea, especially with how things are going at this moment in time,” he said.
“Chelsea need to strengthen the team but, on the other hand, you can spin it – it is, in a way, good news for the younger players.
“For Callum Hudson-Odoi and also for (Ruben) Loftus-Cheek, who now will get chances.
“They [Chelsea] will have to look at their youth if this is ban is upheld.”
Will Eden Hazard ever leave Chelsea and is the signing (Christian) Pulisic a rush buy?
